What you'll do

The focus of the day will be watching a match of Australian Rules Football (or footy) together, but there's a lot more to it than simply catching a game. We'll start by meeting near a local park or oval and I'll introduce you to the most important part of Australian football, the ball itself. We'll go through a basic skills session, I'll teach you how to kick, handball and mark the oval shaped ball. The idea here is to both have fun and get an appreciation for what's going to be happening out on the field later. We'll also discuss some of the history and significance of the sport. We'll then head over to the ground and get settled in for an afternoon of football. I'll provide you with a simple sheet explaining the main rules and we'll go through some of the finer points of the game and introduce you to the teams for that day. Then the match starts and it's all action for the next 2-3 hours. During the the game I'll be available to answer any questions so you're not left scratching your head over a deliberate rushed behind or marking infringement. By the end of the day you'll be an expert on the best sport on earth! PLEASE NOTE: As the AFL season does not begin until late March, current bookings are for AFLW matches (the women's competition). These games are shorter but still exciting and have free entry, so the price has been lowered to reflect this.

Andreas

My love for Australian Rules Football started as a three year old when my dad started taking me along to games and the sport has been a huge part of my life ever since. Like most Melburnians my story starts as a fan, going to games at the MCG. When I was old enough I started playing and over the last ten years have played for various local clubs, school and representative teams and I also spent a few years working as an umpire in a local league. On top of that, I've worked as a tour guide in Melbourne for the last year and a half, so this is a combination of my two passions!

General admission tickets to the game
